Please note the word "pure" in my earlier statement. Yes, I'm aware how a hygroscopic solution behaves. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
I forgot, alcohols for drinking, with a few exceptions, are really heterogenous mixtures. Beer would be a fine example of a heterogeneous mixture, not a true solutution. So there you have it, beer is not the solution to the problem.
